I decided this bike needed some other parts. I bought a nice blue Rond fork, just to keep it dutch! :wink: And changed the brakes to red Magura's!

When I was searching ebay I came across a NOS flite saddle. When I saw it, I knew it was meant te be for the Empella!!!!! I had to have it.... and now it's mine!! :P

Will get some new pictures of the complete bike this weekend!!

Made some changes to the Empella! Got a Rond Quake suspension fork, because it's dutch! :wink: Not sure about the looks.... but will see how it rides..
And added some color! Still waiting for a yellow raceline Magura front brake.

Some changes again. I put the Judy's back on it with new Kronos springs. Looks better than with the Quake! Only need a M737 crankset!

Beautiful, interesting bike !!! You really went through a lot of options to get to the final build. All of them looked nice ......

Curious though..... how could you possibly not use the tri-color flite? It fit so perfectly with the frame. Did you find another need for it, or perhaps, find someone who wanted it more than you needed it?

Love the AC crown BTW....
